Any news about Hans Next project?Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are great
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what it’s like2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.
In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.

The music is very driving and disturbing at the same time, very beautiful and a memorable addition to my collection.

What I would like to know is who decided to use bat species for the track names and what significance the names have to each track.
I've done a little research, but would like to know from the composers or someone else about this.

The soundtrack is good. But I think the Broken Arrow soundtrack is better then Batman Begins.

Track "--Molossus"-- at the end is similar to track "--Outburst Of Rage"-- from Black Rain expanded~*

I agree that all tracks are not so good, but track 1 Vespertilo, track 3 Myotis and trac 10 Molossus are simply EXHILARATING, and no one can deny that!

Listening to it right now - Hans Zimmer is definitely one of the best composers in existence today. This soundtrack and the one from "--Broken Arrow"-- are certainly my two favorites ever.

I like this soundtrack, its got some good quality music, but sometimes it just seems like your being dragged along with some of the songs, not walking with it. The track 10, Molossus is a good song to drive to!

Anyway, this soundtrack to me, is designed to accompany the movie, then it is to listen to privatly in the comfort of your own home.

This soundtrack is awesome. I love Tadarida. There is an overwhelming range of emotion in the music as there should be par the scene. I must admit though, I have seen the movie 4 times so far, and agree with many others, there has got to be more music released. Hans, you are teasing me with some of these tracks. This music you create is like a drug. It is very addictive. There is a piece of music when Bruce is in the cave by the waterfall, I love that piece, and the music used, or modified, when Bruce uses coercion to gain information from Gordon and then escapes. And of course the end title. A sonic delite!

For me, this is one of those scores i like better with every listen. I liked the score before i went to see the movie and i like it even more ater i've seen it. Some may not agree, but i think it fits the new Batman style perfectly. True, there could have been a more dominant and complex theme, but then again - why, if this works so good. The score itself is very dark, rhythmic and full of Zimmerish action and electronic sounds as well as softer piano moments. I also like the idea of using bat-like sounds, flaping of wings and those very disturbing sounds in "--Tadarida"--. The only pieces i'm missing a lot on the OST are the ones playing during the incredibly fast-paced showdown inside the railway at the end and of course the End Titles (can't wait for the DVD, hehe).

its a good score.but not great.
the main problem is Zimmers point of view.He tries again to make a masterpiece.
If he has used his themes more often in this score(batman and bruce theme) the score will be better.the reviews better.and a beter listening experience.
in the other hand I think JNH Love theme is too bland.
barbastella,Espicius,molossus,antrozus(where is the rest of the track?),lasirius(not in the movie) and of course,the amazing END CREDITS are the best of this score.
I'm waiting for end credits with better quality.the best track so far.

This score is absolutely phenomenal. Its typical Zimmer style and i think the colaboration with James Newton Howard was a good decision. Its dark and powerful and fits perfectly to the movie. There are fewer memorable themes compared to other Zimmer scores but the concept still works. Theres one very short theme (basically just two long tones) played over and over again throughout the score. It makes the score sound exciting and explains the character of batman that is impressed by his fears and his hard childhood. Thanks to the score you can literally feel the strength that he receives from his ability to use his fear as his ally. The overall sound is orchestra based and enriched with a lot of synthetical sounds and sweeping beats - just as we like Zimmer. Theres a big dynamical range, though its mostly dark, loud and enthralling - just as the movie is. One of my favorite Zimmer scores.

ok now heard the music and seen the movie. And there s not a moment in the film when the music does not match. Movie is black and so is the score, so im backstepping on what a said before.....just a little though....ok for the score but i maintain my opinion on saying its "--déjà vu"-- hans zimmer score...even if its good and lets just say i agree with one other opinion :"--its too short and there are not enough memorable moments in the score.....anyhow we could go like that for ages saying YES and NO. So Mr ZIMMER even if I DO recognize ur style each time, even if I DO think that some score are almost identicals in rythms and so on......I DO like ur style a lot and well I AM a hans ZIMMER FAN.....hope u ll release a longer BATMAN BEGINS score
